Let’s go to ROVANJSKA, CROATIA with kid(s) !

Rovanjska it is … Eto nekim ludim slučajem je ispalo da je i jednom i drugom malcu Rovanjska bila prvo more … Rovanjska je malo mjesto u uvali na samom kraju podvelebitskog kanala u blizini Zadra. Super stvar kod Rovanjske je da kad ideš iz smjera Zagreba, izađeš iz tunela  Sv. Rok i eto te … Simple as that … Druga stvar kod Rovanjske je ta da se osjećamo kao da smo doma jer najviše ljudi u Rovanjskoj ljeti je s područja Zagreba i Velike Gorice (sad koliko ti to paše ili ne… je druga stvar 😉 ). Nama je eto u Rovanjskoj nekako baš “cozy” pa se često vračamo. Iako  koliko god mi odgovara da je tako sva nekako mirna i pitoma i ne baš prenapučena, voljela bih da ima ipak mrvicu više nekih sadržaja, mislim da istog malo nedostaje, ali opet s druge strane onda to možda ne bi bilo to. Blizina Velebita obogaćuje ovaj kraj svojim parkovima, pećinama, šetnicama i biciklističkim stazama pa se to eto tako nekako kompenzira.

Rovanjska it is … It turned out somehow that for both of our boys Rovanjska was the first sea side they ever saw … Rovanjska is a small place in the bay at the end of Velebit canal, right near Zadar. Cool thing about Rovanjska is that when you’re coming from Zagreb, you just get out from St. Rok tunnel and there you are … Simple as that … Second thing about Rovanjska is that it feels like home cause most people in Rovanjska during summer are from Zagreb or Velika Gorica. Rovanjska is somehow cozy for us, so we come back quite often. Even though I kinda like it being so peaceful and calm, and not too crowded, I would like it to have some more contents, I think maybe it could enlarge some tourist offer a bit, but than on the other side maybe it would lose it’s charm. Being so close to Velebit enriches this county with parks, caves, walking and cycling rails so it  compensates that fact.

U Rovanjskoj je sve na pješke, tako da vam auto neće trebati / Everything is on walking distance in Rovanjska so you really don’t need car

More je bilo mrvicu hladnjikavo prva 2 dana /  The sea was a bit coldish during the first two days

Ako se odlučite za šetnju Rovanjskom rivom obavezno se zaustavite pored crkvice Sv. Jurja. Crkva Sv. Jurja smještena je uz samu morsku obalu. Sačuvana je u svom prvotnom obliku polukriža sa karakterističnom kupolom u obliku elipse i bačvastim svodom. Crkva je pravi biser starohrvatske sakralne arhitekture i zamišljena je kao veliki sunčani sat i kalendar. Stručnjaci nagađaju da je podignuta između 9. i 11. stoljeća i svrstavaju je u red njezinih srodnih ljepotica kao što su Sv. Križ u Ninu i Sv. Pelegrin u Savru. Izgraditi nešto takvo prije više od tisuću godina, predstavljalo je u svakom slučaju pozamašan arhitektonski poduhvat, koji je zahtijevao velika predznanja iz astronomije i matematike. Danas je crkvica sv. Jurja zaštićeni spomenik nulte kategorije i kulturna baština RH.

If you decide to take a walk down the Rovanjska seafront you should take a look at St. Georges church. The church is located right next to the coast. It’s been preserved in its original shape of  “half cross” with the dome in the shape of ellipse and its barell arch. The church is the real pearl of croatian sacral architecture and was concieved as a large sun clock and a calendar. The consumption is that it was built somewhere in between 9. and 11. century and stands right next to simiral beauties such as St. Cross in Nin and St. Pelegrin in Savar. It was quite a big deal to build something like that at that time and required math and astronomy knowledge. Today this church represents cultural heritage of Croatia.

Preko puta crkvice nalazi se mala lučica i šetnica.

Right across the street there’s a small port and a walking area.

Nije rijetkost da u Rovanjskoj puše … Tako da često možete očekivati ovakve prizore … Ne moram ni spominjati da dokle god voda nije prehladna valovi predstavljaju neopisivu radost i veselje klincima.

It’s not rare that it’s quite windy in Rovanjska so scenes like this are quite often … I don’t even have to mention that while the water isn’t quite cold kids enjoy the waves sooo much …

Moram samo spomenuti da ovo nije bio baš najobičniji tjedan u Rovanjskoj … Bio je to tjedan u kojem je Hrvatska igrala polufinale i finale svjetskog u Rusiji pa je samim time sve u tom tjednu bilo podređeno nogometu … ( blago meni s 3 muška u kući 🙂 ) … Frendovi koji su dolazili na vikend do nas imaju člana koji je bio tolko “lud” da je proveo cca 45 min da ugura svoju gigantsku telku u auto ( nije to baš lako uz dječju sjedalicu, dijete, ženu i hrpu stvari koje one nose 🙂 ) jer “onak nebum gledao finale na nekoj maloj kutijici” . Srećom je uspio jer bi u protivnom ili ostao doma ili nekog izbacio iz auta … #iznadsvihhrvatska … 🙂

I just have to mention that this wasn’t just an ordinary week in Rovanjska … It was a week when Croatia played semi-final and final match in Russia so everything was about football  that week ( lucky me with 3 boys 🙂 )… Our friends who were coming only for a weekend have a member who was crazy enough to bring his own TV cause “he ain’t gonna watch THE finals on a TV that is smaller than 127 cm” … Luckely he managed to put it somehow in the car even though it was quite a job and took him quite some time, cause on the other hand I think he would either stay at home or throw somebody out of the car 😀 … #aboveallcroatia  🙂

Stvarno je dovukao telku / He really did drag his TV
